Did your Mac’s Ethernet port mysteriously stop working recently? If so, you could have fallen afoul of a nasty bug that was introduced in a recent OS X security update. Here’s how to fix it.
Earlier today, we heard some disappointing news: The 4-inch iPhone SE probably won’t come with 3D Touch, Apple’s new force-sensitive touchscreen technology. Now, a leaked screen assembly purported to be of the iPhone SE seems to confirm that report as being true. Bummer!
Over the years, Apple concept designer Sam Beckett has made some killer videos, exploring possible ways Cupertino could revamp Notification Center. His latest concept again tackles Notification Center, but this time imagines how 3D Touch could make it better in iOS 10. I’m sold.
Some reports have suggested that when the 4-inch iPhone SE arrives next month, it’s updates over the iPhone 5s will top out with the addition of an A9 chip and NFC for Apple Pay. But reputable KGI Securities analyst Ming Chi Kuo says shutterbugs have something to look forward to, too: a sick 12MP camera.
Do you know FaceSwap Live? It’s this wonderfully grotesque app created by Laan Labs that lets you switch faces with anyone using your iPhone camera.
There’s all sorts of awesomely surreal uses for the app, but I don’t know a better one than what Rhett LeCompte did: He used FaceSwap Live to sing every single part in the 1985 supergroup classic, “We Are the World.”
Wonder what Siri for Mac will be like? To find out, you’ll have to wait for OS X 10.12, code named Fiji, to land later this year. But here’s the next best thing: a concept video that makes us want Siri on the Mac right this second.
Here’s a surprising fact: By default, OS X only checks for software updates once a week. That’s shockingly infrequent, considering the fact that iOS and Windows both check for critical updates every day.
If you’d like your Mac to keep more on top of things, there’s an easy way to tell it to check for software updates more frequently.
If you want a Mac that looks like the trashcan Mac Pro, but don’t actually want to spend the several thousand dollars it costs to buy a Mac Pro, the Dune Case might be for you: it’s a Mac Pro-inspired PC case for any hackintosh you care to throw into it.
The cheapest iPad costs $269. The most expensive iPad costs $1,079. And they’re all basically wafers of easily-damaged silicon, sandwiched between even more easily shattered glass.
The point? You don’t want to drop an iPad, let alone three of them. Yet that’s just what Olga Kay risked, trying to answer one timeless question: can you juggle iPads?
